I love a great ambiance while I'm cooking. I play music and like the fragrant candles burning on the corner of my island. It makes me feel relaxed and luxurious in the kitchen. My kids can even recognize the scents, "Jo Malone citrus today, that Anthropologie gardenia one, vanilla cinnamon, they ask?"
One of my favorite scents for a kitchen, a guest room or a bathroom is the Jo Malone, citrus blend. Grapefruit, lemon and orange, and its subtle too. Pricey but decadent. Get some candles and change your working or cooking environment to a lux one!
